When I first got into hosting, we had to call somebody at our data center any time a customer wanted to make changes to their configuration, such as adding more resources. Our Racker in the DC would have to locate the physical server and install additional hardware to the machine, or they might have to build and provision a completely new server. Our Cloud Application Programming Interface (API) has changed the game, allowing our customers to easily modify their cloud configuration with just a few lines of code. The API is a powerful tool and something all of our customers should know about, regardless of their level of technical ability.
TruQC is a cloud-based quality control documentation app for the iPad. Its goal is to make it easier to manage and monitor projects, achieve true objectivity, keep data safe with real-time syncing, have pertinent data at your fingertips and ensure the necessary documents are always in one place.
Among the many reasons why people choose the cloud, one of the most powerful is the Application Programming Interface, more commonly referred to as the API. As developers continue adopting virtual environments to host their sites and apps, we’re seeing increasingly innovative and powerful uses of this feature.
When a team of Rackers powered up our Cloud in a Box for training at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) this week, it wasn’t the only OpenStack deployment running at MIT. Not far from our classroom, the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) has its own significant OpenStack deployment that has increased computational capacity available to researchers by 25 percent to 50 percent, enabling more research projects, according to Jon Proulx, senior system architect.
Science, technology, engineering and math are the four components of the STEM acronym that we hear so much about today. Each of these pieces is important not only to Rackspace, but also to cloud computing and hosting as a whole. While 65 percent of grade-school children may grow up to have jobs that haven’t even been invented yet, chances are that they will be heavily influenced by STEM.
We’re continuing to follow our technical training team’s four-night course on OpenStack at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Night three of the course focused on Swift, OpenStack’s massively scalable object storage system that was invented at Rackspace.
After a second night of Rackspace Training for OpenStack at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), it’s clear that students and researchers believe OpenStack can help accelerate their projects from aeronautics and astronautics to earth, atmospheric and planetary sciences.
We’re continuing to roll out our training for OpenStack, and this week we launched training at colleges and universities; and we could think of no better place to start than the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
If you’re not quite sure exactly what OpenStack is; you’re not alone. We’re frequently asked what OpenStack is and why we think it’s better than anything else out there.
Remember when software used to be rolled out on year-long cycles? When you would wait with baited breath for the next big application for your PC, or for the next big game? Once upon a time, all the latest and greatest software was typically so expensive that only businesses and companies could afford the bleeding edge applications and systems for things like video conferencing, 3D modeling and programming suites. The democratization of IT has changed this, and a central player in this game has been the cloud. I love how the cloud has accelerated the speed of innovation.
